PEQA Competencies: Preliminary Results Brief, March, 2016:
This past year, the summit group members were asked to take part in a survey designed to better understand what makes an effective program evaluation or quality assurance (PEQA) specialist in state vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies. About 6 years ago, we asked members of the fledgling Summit Group to give us their input on the characteristics that program evaluators need to be effective. Since that time, the Summit Group membership has grown appreciably, as has the sophistication of the PEQA processes within the field. Our research team was interested in identifying the most influential competencies for program evaluators in today’s state VR agencies as well as looking at how these competencies have changed since the earlier, pilot investigation. The results may hold promise in informing more targeted professional development and improved identification of staff to fill PEQA roles. Enjoy!
